Repton Neighbourhood Development Plan

Repton Parish Council has submitted the Repton Neighbourhood Plan to us.

They have undertaken their Regulation 14 consultation.

Regulation 16 Consultation

Under Regulation 15 of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012, Repton Parish Council has submitted its draft Neighbourhood Development Plan (Neighbourhood Plan) to South Derbyshire District Council. 

In accordance with Regulation 16, the Council would like to invite comments from organisations and individuals on the submitted Neighbourhood Plan.

This ‘publicity’ consultation period lasts just over six weeks and runs from Friday, January 18 to Monday, March 4, 2019 at 5pm.

Repton Parish Council undertook consultation on an earlier draft of their Plan. Comments made to the Parish Council from this consultation helped inform changes to the document now submitted to South Derbyshire District Council. 

The Neighbourhood Plan, written by a steering group consisting of members from the community and from Repton Parish Council, proposes a number of policies on housing and open space amongst others. 

The Neighbourhood Development Plan Submission is split into five main documents:

It is the responsibility of the District Council to collate all of the representations made through this Regulation 16 consultation and pass them on to an independent examiner. 

The examiner will look at the representations, together with the Plan documents when assessing whether the Plan meets the basic conditions and is duly made and appropriate, in order for it to proceed to referendum.

Hard copies of the Plan are available to view at:
